As your flight arrives at Kona International Airport (KOA) and you disembark from the plane, chances are you'll feel like doing a hula dance. A tropical paradise, Kona is usually always dry and sunny, so it's the ideal place to sunbathe, surf, dip your toes in the cerulean ocean water, snorkel with manatees, play a round of golf or swim. At Kailua-Kona, you can shop or dine on locally caught ahi at one of the many restaurants while you enjoy the picturesque view of the surf as it crashes over the black lava rocks. After dinner, recharge your batteries with a bit of caffeine by enjoying a piping hot cup of locally grown Kona coffee.
Passengers on flights to Kona usually book hotels near Kona International Airport to rest and rejuvenate. Hotels typically offer free airport transportation services. The Hawaii County Mass Transit Agency Hele-On bus line has limited bus service to Kona for passengers arriving on Kona flights. Most major car rental companies have offices located away from the airport terminal. Ride one of the rental agency's free shuttles to the car rental company in order to get a rental car. To board the car rental agency's shuttle, go to the street located across from baggage claim areas A and B, where you will also find a bevy of taxis lined up curbside.
